Mumbai, October 5: Passengers flying between Mumbai (Maharashtra) to Vapi (Gujarat) can now avail the helicopter services offered by Pawan Hans. The heli taxi services between the two cities have begun on a regular basis from Juhu’s Pawan Hans airport. According to a report by TOI, the Juhu Pawan Hans airport will be flying two helicopter taxis on a daily basis but passengers will have to shell more money because the prices will be more than the usual fare. However, frequent travellers can manage to afford the ride as it would save a lot of time and would be totally worth it.

The TOI report states that at present, the heli taxi services are majorly targeting businessmen who can afford Rs 21,000 per seat in the helicopter service. Moreover, to lure flyers, the service would also offer passengers a limousine service from Vapi which would be included in Rs 21,000. A limousine is a luxury vehicle driven by a chauffeur (driver). Reports inform that the services start from Rs 21,000 from Mumbai to Vapi, and Rs 29, 000 on the Juhu-Vapi and Juhu-Tarapur sectors, which includes a limo transfer service.
The heli taxi services would be time-saving as the distance between the two cities by road is nearly 180 km which takes nearly 3.5 hours to travel by taxi. The report informs that if the project turns out to be successful, Pawan Hans will make the services available in several Tier 2 and Tier 3 cities such as Bengaluru and Delhi.
